Manchester United beat Burnley 1-0 on Tuesday night to move three points clear at the top of the table ahead of this weekend’s game against Liverpool.
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic insists the victory over Burnley proves Manchester United are ready to compete for the title.
“I think that these sort of wins show that we are ready to compete for the title,” Matic told Premier League Productions.
“Sometimes we have looked like a team who wants to score as soon as possible, then we get panicked.
“But I think today we showed more maturity, we showed we are more clever. And on this pitch, at this stadium against Burnley is always hard to win the games, not to concede a goal from long balls and set-pieces.
“We prepared the game well and I think we deserved these three points.”
